The hottest trend hitting the hat world recently is the collaboration route. While somewhat hit-or-miss, Lids has been pumping out new caps with touches of design from outside manufacturers. This cap is an example of a hit as you’ll see below a really seamless collaborative effort from New Era and iconic jean manufacturer Levi’s.
Light blue crown
Dark blue brim and squatcho
White interlocking SD and New Era logo
The third of the New Era x Levi’s series, this cap is the first fitted version after two adjustable versions were produced, one in light and the other in a dark denim. This cap is made of the same soft denim-weave material and is an amalgamation of the two denims used in the adjustable caps. I say denim-weave material because the cap doesn’t feel as thick or heavy as your favorite pair of jeans, which is probably a good thing. The contrast of light and dark denim on this cap makes for a pleasing and wearable aesthetic.
The Levi’s tag is an excellent detail on the wearer’s right: a subtle but ubiquitous touch.
The MLB Batterman in white and navy adorns the rear of the cap.
The underbrim matches the top with a dark navy denim material. The typical black sweatband finishes the look.
The interior tags are typical save for the addition of the Levi’s brand logo as a tag to the left of the Genuine Merchandise logo.
Cap Availability Status: Common
You should still be able to find this particular cap on Lids. I recommend grabbing it sooner rather than later if you really dig it; this cap is one of the better collaboration caps I’ve seen this year.
